Anyone who is going to be gardening for the first time or, particularly if you are going to be introducing a child to gardening, it’s always nice to have some rapid results. Unlike something like planting corn, where you plant it as early in the season as possible, and then hope that you don’t have an early winter, which could kill it before it produces anything, it’s nice to have some quick results. Radishes are good for that. Sprouts emerge within days of planting the seeds, and they are ready for harvesting within a month. Because the seeds are small, you might have to do some thinning within a couple of weeks. Parsley can be even faster, and can sometimes be harvested within three weeks of planting, and if you harvest twenty percent or less of the plant, it will quickly rejuvenate and produce more for your table. Some lettuces, such as Romaine, can be harvested as early as thirty days after planting. Spinach leaves can be ready for harvesting in as early as four to six weeks, plus the spinach plant will continue growing and producing new leaves well into the summer. Snow peas take about ten days to germinate, and are ready for harvesting in a couple of months. Some varieties of bush beans are ready for harvesting within forty to sixty-five days after planting. Turnips produce edible leaves as well as the turnip roots. The leaves can be harvested after about forty days, while the roots will be ready in a couple of months, depending on the size you’re looking for. Although the fruit of the zucchini plant won’t be ready to harvest for about seventy days, the zucchini plant will take over your garden plot within a few weeks. They should be spaced out at least two feet apart.
